En este Vol. I de Las Grandes Obras de H.G. Wells se incluyen "La Máquina del Tiempo" y "La Isla del Dr. Moreau". La Máquina del Tiempo: Obra que se halla en los inicios de la novela de ciencia-ficción (1895), sigue conservando el mismo poder de fascinación y vigor…
But slowly, over the semester, they gingerly form a bond that begins to anchor both of them. And over the next twenty years, as they live very separate lives—she in Northern California and he finally settled in a tiny New Hampshire town—they reach out to each other through e-mails, phone calls, and visits. Their continual connection helps Isabelle find the courage to take greater risks and push Daniel to work through layers of self-loathing and regret that have kept his career from flourishing. They are the single constant in each other's life and the most profound influence.
Daniel and Isabelle recognize they are among the blessed few who meet at the exact moment they need each other the most, and that their lives are transformed by this connection. In a final collaboration, the boundaries of teacher and student give way to a work that heals something in each of them. They truly see each other as extraordinary—as people do when they love—and that belief makes all the difference.
